This blog is a chronicle of my life as a female athlete; the hardships, hurdles, and adventures... Here, I share personal bests and worsts with my biggest supporters (my husband, family, coaches, and friends) and pay homage to all the amazing female athletes who charged forward before me to sit boldly in seats usually reserved for men. Hard work works! Here's why:
Thank you for the opportunity to try out with the Northern California Dream Team this weekend.
I am hungry for feedback that will raise my level of play. Here's what I was wearing both days:
Saturday, March 24th - Gray V-neck and glasses
Sunday, April 15th - Hot pink tank top and black head band
I am prepared to work tirelessly on my own time to improve. I care deeply about people and I am a natural source of confidence and positive energy. If I make the team, I will be your ultimate team player.
Thank you for your time and attention to my request.
Thanks for the email. I won't be able to get to your video until this weekend, but will get back to you next week. I think you are very athletic, but not quite at the level you need to be to make a roster position for this year's team. I will send you some specific feedback and please keep training and come out for next season's team.
How are you? Sorry I have taken so long to get back to you. Like I said before, you are a very good athlete in great shape. Some of the things to work on are your platform on passing. Work a bit more on getting it out early and setting the angle to the target. We are also looking for our passes to go high middle (15 – 20 feet high 5 feet off the net). Work on getting more consistent in that area. The other key area is attacking. Work on contacting the ball at your highest point. You have a tendency to hit the ball on the way down. Also, work on hitting the whole court. In looking at your videos, you had a tendency to hit one area and got stuck outside of that area. I think the best way to improve your game is to just play the game. I think you are talented, but need some more experience to get to the next level. I look forward to seeing you next season.
